Some of the Alesis products have a setup and data memory backed up by a battery. It is POSSIBLE that your battery expired and took the sound memory with it.

Investigate if you have a battery in yours (buried in the guts) and check the voltage. It should be above about 3 volts.

If it is below that, replace the battery and find another unit to clone the data from.

Only distortion..


Check your power adapter. This unit REQUIRES a 9 volt AC adapter, NOT a DC one... It MAY appear to operate on DC BUT it can't generate the +/- voltages internally for sound generation with a DC adapter. This is a common problem as people try to run these on a DC adapter.

Have the alesis dm6 there is no out put sound. monitor appears to be working. hooked to small amp or headphones. just fuzz. please help. little guys christmas present!!!


Two things:

Check that cables are seated, especially the one at the main module.

Second, look for a setting for "Local Control" in your user's manual; That setting should be "On" to accept the triggers from the pads.

My Alesis D4 Drum Module shows squares in the Display screen and both the both the Store and Note Chase light come on and stay on. I have tried both a new power supply and pushing both the Voice and Output...


Open the unit and see if it has a battery that holds the settings. Check the voltage... it should be around 3 volts. If less than 2.5 volts replace it.

Verify the INTERNAL regulated power supply as the external you verified with new unit. The external is likely regulated within the D4 and either due to an overload or bad regulator may be below the voltage to run the processor. It is likely 5 volts and anything over 4.85 would be acceptable.

Alesis sr16: How do you hook it up??


Come from the main outputs, probably labeled L/mono and R and connect those to your mixer for your audio system on either stereo mix input OR two two inputs that are panned opposite.. DO NOT connect this to a consumer type stereo system as you may blow the speakers or amp. Consumer stuff just isn't able to take output from music equipment such as this UNLESS the volume is kept very low.

Sampling into yamaha dtxpress iv


If you have a sampler, you could midi out of the DTX brain into the midi in of the sampler to trigger the sounds. If not ,try downloading KORE2 from Native Instruments onto your computer and triggering it using the above mentioned method . Midi out from your brain to Midi in on your computer. Hope this helps.
